Where to Really Get Egg Burgers in Los Angeles

This Popsugar story came wafting across my nose this morning via Eater LA. I guess egg burgers are trendy all of the sudden, and I couldn’t help but think how lacking the list was. Fatburger?

The Burger Stand – Crenshaw

If you ever find yourself crusin’ down the Shaw (Crenshaw Blvd for those who don’t know) and you have a craving for some cheap, good eats, I recommend stopping by The Burger Stand. I drive by here every day and never stopped. Mostly because there is no parking on Crenshaw till after 7pm, and partly […]
